ADNOC refinery costs behind diesel price rise

Authorities are systematically reducing subsidies, which brings prices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai closer to parity.

The price of diesel in Abu Dhabi will tomorrow increase for the second time in three months. Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) will raise the price of the fuel, which is used mainly in lorries, buses and heavy equipment, by 25 fils to Dh2.35 (64 US cents) per litre, or 12 per cent, the official WAM news agency reported.

ADNOC said prices were being increased to offset losses from the high cost of producing the fuel. While most lorry drivers were expected to oppose the increase, at least one transportation manager welcomed a move that could help close the gap between diesel prices in Abu Dhabi and neighbouring Dubai. The price difference causes congestion in ADNOC stations near the border between the two emirates, with drivers queuing up to buy lower-priced fuel on the Abu Dhabi side.

"If it is only ADNOC, then it's a good thing," said Selwyn Burbridge, the general manager of Oman Transport, a large UAE haulage company. But he said the Abu Dhabi subsidy cut did not go far enough. "As of today, Dubai fuel is still much more expensive," he said. "We need uniform pricing across the UAE." Yesterday, ADNOC implemented a 14 per cent increase in petrol prices it announced last week. Motorists rushed to fill their tanks ahead of the price rise, forming queues at petrol stations in the capital on Wednesday evening that backed up on to main roads.

Car dealers and economists predicted that Federal Government plans to raise petrol prices gradually would prompt drivers in the UAE to purchase smaller, more efficient cars in place of fuel-guzzling sport utility vehicles and sports cars. Petrol and diesel prices will have been raised twice this year. The cost of petrol has increased by up to 27 per cent in total, depending on the grade, while diesel will have gone up by 24 per cent.

Until this year, ADNOC had not raised diesel prices since 2006 or petrol prices since 2005. tcarlisle@thenational.ae

How the UAE flag should be flown

The UAE has strict laws regulating the flying of the country’s flag.

Standards set by the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology say the flag should be rectangular in shape, its height half of its width and the colours in the correct order.

The owner must check on the flag’s condition every 45 days to ensure it is not damaged and it must be changed every six months.

The rules apply to situations where a flag is hung permanently at government buildings or embassies.

But there are regulations to govern the short-term use of flags as well. They stipulate that the flag should be made of nylon and it must weigh more than 122.5 grams per square metre.

The penal code includes fines and even jail for those who abuse the flag.

According to Article 176, “anyone who publicly insults the President, flag or the national emblem of the State, shall be punished by detention".

Article 3 of federal law No 2 for 1971 says whoever uses the flag inappropriately will face a jail sentence up to six months, and / or a fine; “as the country’s flag should be treated with dignity and respect, and should not be insulted, and not raised below any other flag or banner.”

The UAE has strict laws regulating the flying of the country’s flag.

Standards set by the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology say the flag should be rectangular in shape, its height half of its width and the colours in the correct order.

The owner must check on the flag’s condition every 45 days to ensure it is not damaged and it must be changed every six months.

The rules apply to situations where a flag is hung permanently at government buildings or embassies.

But there are regulations to govern the short-term use of flags as well. They stipulate that the flag should be made of nylon and it must weigh more than 122.5 grams per square metre.

The penal code includes fines and even jail for those who abuse the flag.

According to Article 176, “anyone who publicly insults the President, flag or the national emblem of the State, shall be punished by detention".

Article 3 of federal law No 2 for 1971 says whoever uses the flag inappropriately will face a jail sentence up to six months, and / or a fine; “as the country’s flag should be treated with dignity and respect, and should not be insulted, and not raised below any other flag or banner.”

What is blockchain?

Blockchain is a form of distributed ledger technology, a digital system in which data is recorded across multiple places at the same time. Unlike traditional databases, DLTs have no central administrator or centralised data storage. They are transparent because the data is visible and, because they are automatically replicated and impossible to be tampered with, they are secure.

The main difference between blockchain and other forms of DLT is the way data is stored as ‘blocks’ – new transactions are added to the existing ‘chain’ of past transactions, hence the name ‘blockchain’. It is impossible to delete or modify information on the chain due to the replication of blocks across various locations.

Blockchain is mostly associated with cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Due to the inability to tamper with transactions, advocates say this makes the currency more secure and safer than traditional systems. It is maintained by a network of people referred to as ‘miners’, who receive rewards for solving complex mathematical equations that enable transactions to go through.

However, one of the major problems that has come to light has been the presence of illicit material buried in the Bitcoin blockchain, linking it to the dark web.

Other blockchain platforms can offer things like smart contracts, which are automatically implemented when specific conditions from all interested parties are reached, cutting the time involved and the risk of mistakes. Another use could be storing medical records, as patients can be confident their information cannot be changed. The technology can also be used in supply chains, voting and has the potential to used for storing property records.

It is maintained by a network of people referred to as ‘miners’, who receive rewards for solving complex mathematical equations that enable transactions to go through.

However, one of the major problems that has come to light has been the presence of illicit material buried in the Bitcoin blockchain, linking it to the dark web.

Other blockchain platforms can offer things like smart contracts, which are automatically implemented when specific conditions from all interested parties are reached, cutting the time involved and the risk of mistakes. Another use could be storing medical records, as patients can be confident their information cannot be changed. The technology can also be used in supply chains, voting and has the potential to used for storing property records.

What is blockchain?

Blockchain is a form of distributed ledger technology, a digital system in which data is recorded across multiple places at the same time. Unlike traditional databases, DLTs have no central administrator or centralised data storage. They are transparent because the data is visible and, because they are automatically replicated and impossible to be tampered with, they are secure.

The main difference between blockchain and other forms of DLT is the way data is stored as ‘blocks’ – new transactions are added to the existing ‘chain’ of past transactions, hence the name ‘blockchain’. It is impossible to delete or modify information on the chain due to the replication of blocks across various locations.

Blockchain is mostly associated with cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Due to the inability to tamper with transactions, advocates say this makes the currency more secure and safer than traditional systems.
